The keyed ignition assembly has failed internally. This would be a great expense from the dealer, so check online for discount mercedes part suppliers. You could replace it yourself if you found a matching style but your door and trunk keys would be different.

Key wont turn or release the steering wheel

I'm not familiar with the Mercedes, but first of all, NEVER turn your wheels all the way, it'll cause damage sooner or later, you kind of found this out already. Next, try getting to the fuse center under the dash and probably under the hood of the car, check all your fuses with a digital volt meter, replace any that are bad.

Your last statement is "won't start" does the engine spin? or nothing at all happens when you turn the key? If your sure the battery connections are all tight and clean the next step I would do is plug an OBD II scanner in and get any codes that have popped up in your computer, if there aren't any, then my next suggestion would be to start checking into the ignition system, If you forced you key to turn in anyway when you had your wheels locked to the side, you could have damaged the electro-mechanical components in the steering column.

My 1985 Mercedes 300D will not shut off after turning the ignition off and removing the key

vacuum leak.
You can start troubleshooting by finding the thin plastic tube that goes from the engine firewall into the inside of the car. Disconnect that on the engine side and plug it on the engine side with a golf t and tape. If this shuts the engine down with the key, there is a leak in one of your tubes inside of the car (door locks and trunk lock are all vacuum operated).

Smart key not turning in c240 all batteries were check.

On Mercedes, and most German cars for that matter, you can only turn the key to the start position once. Then you have to turn the key completely off to turn it back to the start position again.

On almost all cars the steering wheel can also prevent you from turning the key, if the wheel is jammed to one side or the other. If you giggle the steering wheel left and right while turning the key, you can usually unjam it.

Hope this helps. Good luck and have a nice evening. Peter

My vehicle is a Mercededs C200 compressor yr2002 The key in the ignition is not turning to start the engine as the steering lock is not unlocking. What is the cause and solution?

With your foot on the brake try and move your gearshifter in to the neutral position it may start in nuetral. If not check around the switch some Mercedes have a small safety button that needs to be pushed to remove your key sometimes you can try pushing the button and moving your switch several times and it will unlock. Those are just a few things to try, good luck.

I tried to turn my 1981 mercedez benz 300d on and smoke emitted from the steering wheel column. The key can be inserted into the ignition and the power light turns on, but when you turn the key the car...

This is a bad problem, and will probably require you to replace the entire ignition system and wiring located in the mechanical end of the steering column. I feel the smoke was melting wiring due to excessive use and time. the shorted wiring or even an open wire in the steering column will most certainly keep your engine from starting. If your not familiar with 12volt systems or have a hard time with small mechanics, than find someone who can help disassemble the column and locate the wiring that needs to be replaced.
